    Congrats. Those wooded cellar hole sites seem to preserve copper coins like nowhere else and you certainly have a knack for finding them

    Big congratulations to you!! What a find! Iím glad you were rewarded for all your hard work. Your post is very inspirational to me, I just started (last week) on clearing a cellar hole of debris, brush, and branches.

    Super find! Enjoy! Congrats and HH

    Thanks Anton. It felt real good that my intuition payed off on this one. Like I said, this is a winter project and Iíve probably only done about 5% of the work. But thatís a good thing. With a great find like the Nova Iím fully prepared to see the project out, with hopes of some more to come. Iím hoping my British silver is in there somewhere

    Well who needs British silver when you've got Constellatio, 1792 Quarter wouldn't be bad though.

    Well done on your excavation of that cellar hole. It is nice when your labor actually pays off. Great score on another rare old bird of early Americana Coinage. Congratulations mate!

    Honestly bud, Iíve never did a project like excavating an entire cellar hole. Iíve done partials, layer removal, and pit sifts, but never something like this. Why this place? Because I believe a dozer in the 20ís pushed-in the foundation walls extending above the ground. A lot of dirt and rock were pushed in and it needs to come out. The reason I think this spot is so important is because Iíve dug a colonial silver spill, A Nova, Spanish facsimile links, and much more from this site. The site minimally dates to the 1750ís and the man who resided here had style & money. And I think he dropped a lot more thatís yet to surface.
